Boban Marjanovic provided excellent towering defense against Kyle Lowry as the Raptor tried to inbound the ball for the final possession of the half that Toronto got as a result of Lowry selling a foul well.

It all started late in the second quarter with exactly one second remaining. Lowry got an inbounds pass from the...

The Sixers Are Going For It

The Sixers Are Going For It

The Philadelphia 76ers have acquired not-quite-all-star forward Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers, in a blockbuster trade first reported overnight by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. They’ll have the strongest starting five in the East, by miles—and, given the risks they’re taking, now had better at least make the dang Finals.

In exchange for Harris, who will be an unrestricted free agent...

Boban Marjanovic, Who Was Very Pumped To Be In John Wick 3, Kicked A Stuntman Very Far

Boban Marjanovic, Who Was Very Pumped To Be In John Wick 3, Kicked A Stuntman Very Far

Over at the Wall Street Journal, Ben Cohen has an extremely enjoyable breakdown of Boban Marjanovic’s star turn in John Wick 3. At 7-foot-3 and 290 pounds, Boban, then with the Clippers, was handpicked to play a large assassin in a library fight scene alongside Keanu Reeves—and for much of the shoot, alongside Reeves’s stunt double, Jackson Spidell. Though Marjanovic is more than comfortable...

Boban Lives!

Boban Lives!

It looked real bad when huge basketball man Boban Marjanovic went down in a heap against the Pelicans Monday night. His leg twisted to an alarming angle, and he was unable to put any weight on it at all, and he seemed to be in a ton of pain. And when huge fellows like Boban crab-meat their lower legs, that can spell lasting, catastrophic bad news.

Which is why today’s report, out of...

Sweet Towering Prince Boban Marjanovic Injured In Nasty Fall

Sweet Towering Prince Boban Marjanovic Injured In Nasty Fall

Late in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s narrow road win over the Pelicans, huge galoot Boban Marjanovic got tangled up with Pelicans not-nearly-as-big man Cheick Diallo going for a loose ball. Boban’s right leg got folded up between Diallo’s legs, and twisted hideously as the two players fell to the floor. As the action raced the other way, the bigger fellow was not able to get back to...

Big Boban Flicked One Over Small Al

Big Boban Flicked One Over Small Al

It’s always a treat to see the hands of Boban Marjanovic manipulate a tiny basketball . During the Sixers’ loss to the Celtics Tuesday night, the Philly center was regularly corralling rebounds without leaving the floor. He snagged this one like an apple off a high branch:

The slow-footed Marjanovic wasn’t the most natural matchup against Celtics big man Al Horford—Brett Brown admitted that...

Bobi And Tobi's Beautiful Friendship Survives The Clippers-Sixers Trade [Update]

Bobi And Tobi's Beautiful Friendship Survives The Clippers-Sixers Trade [Update]

By now you’ve heard about the blockbuster trade that sent Clippers great Boban Marjanovic to the Sixers in exchange for a quiver of picks and some rotation guys. Big Boban is on the move, but he won’t be alone. Bobi will head to Philly accompanied by his dear friend Tobias “Tobi ” Harris, in a pairing that has survived their last three NBA teams. That’s an unusual feat for any two teammates...

Boban Marjanovic Gets Wrecked With A Book In The New John Wick Trailer

Boban Marjanovic Gets Wrecked With A Book In The New John Wick Trailer

When basketball giant Boban Marjanovic was named among the cast in the next installment of the John Wick franchise, I feared that his cameo would be a forgettable one. Maybe he’d be spotted sipping champagne in a dark corner of a European night club, or at best be a faceless goon who catches a bullet from Wick in a shootout. But the movie’s first trailer dropped today , and it appears that...

Boban Marjanovic Can Ferociously Dunk By Just Kinda Leaning Back

Boban Marjanovic Can Ferociously Dunk By Just Kinda Leaning Back
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

As a general rule, garbage time is unfun to watch—just a bunch of guys scrimmaging out in the public sphere, the actual game long reduced to a formality. The large exception to that rule is named Boban. There will never be a time when 7-foot-3 center Boban Marjanovic is on a basketball court and doesn’t bring a better...

Thank God The Boban Show Is Back

Thank God The Boban Show Is Back

Nothing changes the complexion of an NBA game, or the welfare of its hoop apparatus, faster or more decisively than the release of Boban. The Nuggets knew this, but had no one who could impede him. The Clippers knew it, but they also know that Boban’s is a power that can be harnessed only for precious minutes at a time. When it is working, the dude will just inject a no-jump dunk directly...

Boban Plays Tennis

Boban Plays Tennis

Boban Marjanovic appears to be spending some of his offseason back in his native Serbia, which has produced tennis stars like reigning Wimbledon champ Novak Djokovic and former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic. As tall, smooth-moving players with big serves increasingly find success in the men’s game, it’s become tempting to wonder what an elite basketball player might be able to do on a tennis court,...

Big Boban Bigger Than Little Tony

Big Boban Bigger Than Little Tony

For a single moment, on a dead ball, with their playoff hopes long dead too, the Clippers reduced seven-foot generational talent Anthony Davis to a small nephew.

After tomorrow’s final game against the Lakers, big Boban will rest for six moons.

Rest well, Boban.

Big Boban Takes Little Ball

Big Boban Takes Little Ball

Hungrily, steadily, undeterred by failure, the Boban stalks its prey—then strikes, immobilizing it in an instant. This happened on Tuesday night and I still haven’t been able to get it out of my head.

Boban Loves To Dance

Boban Loves To Dance

Boban Marjanovic has been working on his craft. Yesterday he was seen bopping in an adorable huddle with new friend DeAndre Jordan and old friend Tobias Harris, who accompanied him from Detroit to Los Angeles in the January trade .

It is now up to Drake to remix this song, replacing each instance of “God’s Plan” with “Bo-Ban.”

The Boban Show Is Captivating, Even If The Episodes Are Short

The Boban Show Is Captivating, Even If The Episodes Are Short

Late in the third quarter, with all their wings whirring and Nikola Jokic calmly calling the shots from the center, the Nuggets stretched their lead over the Clippers to 19. Tuesday’s game took on the shape of a blowout. If you want to radically alter the shape of a basketball game, add 7-foot-3 Boban Marjanovic to it, and so the Clippers did. Boban went to work. He played 15 minutes, but...

Boban Marjanovic Executes Slowest Dunking-On In NBA History

Boban Marjanovic Executes Slowest Dunking-On In NBA History

Gregg Popovich rested his starters last night in Oklahoma City, or rather, he unleashed Boban Marjanovic on the Thunder. He didn’t exactly play very well (somehow he only grabbed six rebounds?), but he did manage to pull off the most glacial dunk of the 2016 season, over 60 percent of OKC’s starting lineup.

Hell Yeah, Boban Marjanovic Got Himself In A Local TV Commercial

If Timofey Mozgov has taught us one thing, it’s that big, oafish centers are a perfect fit for low-budget local commercials. So we’re very pleased to see that Spurs center Boban “Not Some Sort Of Odd Thing” Marjanovic has gotten himself into the game.

Giant Monster Dunks On Poor Sucker; Poor Sucker Laughs

Giant Monster Dunks On Poor Sucker; Poor Sucker Laughs

San Antonio’s “sort of an odd thing ” Boban Marjanović (pictured here) is 7-foot-3, very strong, and has hands the size of Manu Ginobili. What I am saying here is that one can only do so much to prevent him from catching and dunking basketballs. Sometimes he’s just gonna catch a basketball and dunk it!

Last night, at the tail end of another lopsided Spurs home win (side note: if the NBA season...
